As a former breeder, I had no objection to a prospective owner visiting to view and play with the kittens, in fact I encouraged it. When I bought my Devons I visited their breeder twice before they were old enough to come home with me. I've always believed that it is the kitten that chooses its owner, and sometimes when a prospective buyer was adamant about a certain color/pattern, often it was that kitten that was not interested in the buyer. imo, a kitten that chooses its owner usually has a closer bond with it. This was the case with my white girl Alkee. I really don't like white cats that much and prefer torties, torbies, calicos, but on my visits she was the one that kept coming back to me and getting in my lap while I sat on the floor, so I got her rather than the flashy cream & white bicolor boy I had my eye on.
